Open Space Supplementary Planning Document

Malvern Hills District Council has prepared an Open Space Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).

The SPD was adopted on the 5th August 2008.

The SPD sets out the District Council's approach to securing open space, sport and recreational facilities through new housing development.

The guidance forms the basis for negotiation with new housing developers for contributions towards the provision of appropriate open space, sport and recreational facilities and their long term maintenance, as referred to in policies CN12 (page 149) and CN13 (page 151) of the adopted Malvern Hills District Local Plan.

The SPD is supported by an audit of open space, sport and recreation facilities, the  "Malvern Hills District Open Space Study 2007" .
